Fontbonne Ministries Introduces New Logo

This November, Fontbonne Ministries is pleased to launch its new logo!

Joan Breech, Administrator of Fontbonne Ministries, explains,

“All of our activities are directed towards achieving our vision – to be a sustainable expression of the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto in social ministry. One of those activities has been to develop a corporate logo, a visual and visible symbol that distinguishes Fontbonne Ministries from other organizations and helps to define its identity.  

The Sacred Heart Centres Work

Rosemary Fry CSJ provides an update on her ministry in Haiti.

The goal of Sacred Heart Center in Cap Haitien is a healthier, more stable family unit, able to function independently within the Haitien society. It is a goal achieved in different small steps over many years and more than one generation.

Dealing with media muggings

As part of Faith Connection’s Media Month, Joe Sinasac and Sara Loftson held a workshop and discussion on dealing with media on May 29, 2007 at the Pastoral Center on 1155 Yonge Street. Joe is editor of The Catholic Register and Sara is the paper’s youth editor.

Joe outlined how certain stories can be reported factually and then gradually, if they push peoples’ hot buttons, these stories get picked up by others and turned into opinion pieces that can distort the facts. Also, headlines can twist a story and send out a more inflammatory message than the story calls for.

Archbishop Collins Describes a Christian's Role

St. Peter's Church, the huge arms reaching out, is the perfect image of Christianity," said Toronto's Archbishop Thomas Collins, pictured above at May 14's Theology on Tap. He described the modern Christian's challenges as living in relationship to others, accepting imperfection, and coming to God through prayer and the sacraments.

He pointed out that the central idea within Christianity is building community: Christians do not travel alone and often come together – like Faith Connection's gatherings.

Shout for Joy

An audience of over app.125 people delighted in the wonderful music of the University of St. Michael’s Liturgical Choir, whose voices were raised on March 29, 2007 at Brennan Hall on St. Mary Street. Father Bob Madden CSB introduced the “Shout for Joy” concert and gave the reason for the evening, “To provide help and hope to Haiti.” The 12 young women and eight young men sang such favourites as “Be Thou My Vision” and “The Storm is Passing Over” accompanied by their pianist. Together, they raised over $1200.00.
